Our Take on Sirui VA-5 Ultra-Compact Video Head:
The Sirui VA-5 Ultra-Compact Video Head includes separate independent locks for tilt and pan so that you can control each function independently without affecting the other. It also employs a dedicated counterbalance for easy and smooth tilt function when using heavy cameras so that you have peace of mind while you are immersed in your shoot. The counterbalance is of the spring-loaded type for strength and easy maneuvering.
The Sirui VA-5 Ultra-Compact Video Head comes with a TY-70A quick-release plate that can be adjusted forward and backward while it is fixed on the head. It helps maintain the correct balance of the camera. The unit also accepts a wide range of other plates from SIRUI and many Arca-compatible ones. Even more types of plates are used with this head by photographers by making slight adjustments or removing a screw of the plate. However, it is not recommended as it can affect the safety mechanism. The safety mechanism incorporated in the unit comes in the form of a dual lock to prevent the plate or the camera from falling when the basic locking is loosened. The plate will not come off only by releasing the primary lock. The secondary lock also needs to be released to take out the plate. You can easily release the secondary lock with a simple press, which makes unlocking an easy process.
While shooting, the horizontal level alignment of the Sirui VA-5 Ultra-Compact Video Head can be done accurately with the help of the two bubble levels that are incorporated into the unit. One of them is at the bottom of the head and helps in bringing the tripod to a proper level. You can find the other bubble level on top of the head. It helps in ensuring the proper level of the camera. Using both levels properly, you can get an accurate horizontal-aligned shot. The unit comes with a panning handle to make all the pan and tilt operations. The base mount has a female thread with a dimension of 3/8"-16.
